a what they do. the last time they were in charge, congressman ryan voted 4 and governor romney said he agreed with all of the things that were done last time around. last time around is what caused this national debt. how did this happen? when clinton left, we had a balanced budget in the surplus and things were looking good. [applause] what happened? what happened? they talk about this great recession that they and knowledge as it is fell from the sky. in september of 2008, all of the sudden this thing happened. as my little granddaughter would say, who did it? casper the ghost? they put two wars on a credit card, not paying a penny. even though i introduced legislation to pay for that war. the voted for a new entitlement program without paying one penny for it. they added another trillion dollars in tax cuts for the wealthy. what was the result. ? these are the facts. the result was by the time the rain that turned back over to barack obama and me, they had doubled the national debt in 8 years. the fourth, fifth, or six days we were in office, we were sitting in the oval office at s

's be fair here. governor romney has laid out a direction and a vision for the direction of this country. he's not an accountant. he's not going to go line by line as much as you'd like him to do through the budget. but let's hold the president to the same standard and criticize him as well. >>> good morning, it is monday, october 1st. it's october, everybody. welcome to "morning joe." >> yeah, you know who's glad september's over? >> who? >> the jets. holy cow! >> i thought you were going to say mitt romney. with us on set, we have msnbc and "time" senior political editor mark halperin and national affairs editor for "new york" magazine john heilemann. guys. hi, willie. >> hello. >> it's not as bad as being a red sox fan, but if you're a jets fan right now, holy cow! tebow's like, you know, he's getting ready. >> he should have been ready. i don't know why they kept sanchez in the whole game. 103 yards, less than 50% passing, one interception and frankly wasn't close. it was a strange thing to watch. >> it was absolutely brutal. and then, of course, the yankees, man. that playoff race. >> o

presidential debate. tonight inside the obama and romney debate camps. how the candidates are preparing for the showdown. >>> making the case. the supreme court begins. >>> and carmageddo 2. what happened this weekend when one of the busiest highways in the countries was shut down. how did california cope with its freeway car free? >>> good evening from the joint command headquarters of the international security assistance force in kabul. we have been traveling through this country all week trying to take measure of this war, another insider attack has left a u.s. soldier and an american civilian dead. that brings the death toll to 2,118. so far this year, 267 have been killed. 31 of those killed at the hands of afghan police and military members. insider attacks. tonight against the backdrop of next month's presidential election, we're beginning a special look at a region at the brink and the foreign policy challenges that america is facing here in syria and afghanistan. richard engel, you have more on that attack today? >> reporter: cooperation between u.s. and afghan forces is the m
any of the cases you discussed would be an opportunity for president obama were gov. mitt romney to score political points and what that argument might sound like on these issues? and is there any earthly chance that either of them would try to do something like that? >> the only case that has gotten onto the radar of the broader public would be health care. i think it would be a reference back. the supreme court, because the economy takes all the oxygen out of the election with a little bit of foreign affairs, the supreme court does not play among undecided voters could but it is a motivator for one space to get out and get to the polls because you want this person to replace justice ginsburg when she retires, for example. and health care is really the only thing that resonates. if there is any possible outcome is that the obama administration has declined to defend the defense of marriage act. and governor romney may well decide that he would defend the constitutionality of that statute could but it does not seem that that kind of social conservative question has a lot of salie
, afghanistan, and president obama is trashing mitt romney. let's take a listen. >> would it be disastrous for the country if mitt romney were elected? >> well, you know, i think america is so strong and we've got so much going for us, that we can survive a lot. but the american people don't want to just survive. we want everybody to thrive. we want folks to have a shot at success. and so the question then just becomes whose policies are more lookly to lead us to where we want to go. >> obviously in this campaign season, this is where the candidates are going. they're going to the "the view," the jay leno show" or "the daily show." president obama got rid of bin laden, he end the the war in afghanistan and iraq. it just seemed weird that he had a world stage to show how important he was as a world statesman and here he is talk on "the view." >> are there any big accomplishments that come out of these meetings? he is getting a lot of criticism over this but what's the outcome anyway? >> if you look at some of the issues out there and you saw what happened last week, raging protests in pakis

choice for president that we have faced at least in my memory. now that governor romney has made it official -- i might add, they are both decent men. they are both good family men. no, no, no. i don't neeth need your "boos," we need your help. [cheers and applause] i have a bad reputation of being straight and telling you what i think, and sometimes all that i think. but look, folks, all kidding aside, by picking paul ryan, what governor romney has done is he has given clear definition to all those vague assertions he was making during his primary campaign. he talked a lot about a lot of the things that paul ryan talked about, but never in any detail. but by picking paul ryan and laying out why he picked paul ryan, he picked paul ryan because paul ryan does represent the ideological -- how do i say it? the center of the republican party. he said, basically, that's why i'm picking paul ryan. now we don't have to guess about what governor romney meands means when he says things about medicare, social security, and all these things. it is almost like two incumbents running. because

businesses would get tax relief. the position republicans have taken is that unless people like mitt romney or companies like being capital get tax relief, nobody in the country gets cat -- tax relief. the president also called upon the congress to take up a jobs bill. that has been sitting before the congress for over one year now. it was submitted last september and calls for a major new investment in our country's infrastructure. obviously, the need to out there if you just look at our aging infrastructure. we have over 14% unemployment in the construction industry so this is a win-win. finally, we have these across the board tax cuts taking place. the democrats in the house proposed a balanced alternative to make sure that those cuts to not take effect or cut defense and non-defense programs in an indiscriminate manner. house republican colleagues said they don't want to allow that to happen to their refuse to allow a vote on the democratic substitute. is the most balanced approach offered. it is closing loopholes for big companies and other types of revenue measures. those items we sho
